Hand Carved “Early Winter Oak Leaves

Figured Maple   Natural Finish

I’m fortunate to live in a northern hardwood forest where I have access to extraordinary timber. A local logger/ miller friend of mine puts aside special unique logs that show the most beautiful unique figured character.  Then he ages them for a year, mills them into mantel slabs instead of his usual boards, and passes them on – only  to Mendota Mantels!  I’m very lucky to know him!  (Thank You John!)

This is one of those rare pieces.  It’s a “Live edged” hard red maple. 

For those of you who know wood, you’ll understand how special this piece is.  For those of you who don’t know wood, just take a look, hopefully you’ll see how pretty, unusual, and unique it’s grain is.  Not your typical maple slab mantel.  If you want a rare one- of- a -kind mantel, this is it! On a scale of  figuring from 1 to 10, this piece is a 8!

It occurs to me that this would be a great soft piece for a bedroom….or….perhaps a very contemporary home. You might call it just a bit “avant-gardes”. Oh…pink..? Why not?

It’s a lovely color and why do mantels always have to be just wood grain anyways?
